Manchester City star Robinho has expressed his desire to stay at Eastlands for another '10 years' despite persistent speculation linking him with a big money switch to Barcelona.
The 25-year-old has been the subject of interest from the European champions since the summer, with Barca coach Pep Guardiola a confirmed admirer of the former Real Madrid man.
The Brazilian has done little in the way of ending the rumours over the past few months, speaking in glowing terms about
the Catalan giants in interviews back in his homeland and admitting it would be a 'dream' to play for the club.
However, Robinho - who City paid Real a British record £32.5million fee for in 2008 - claims he can see himself staying at the City of Manchester Stadium for the next 'five or 10 years
"I am very happy at Manchester City and I intend to continue playing here for a long time," he said, when asked about his future in an interview to be broadcast on BBC's Football Focus this coming Saturday.
"My focus is with Manchester City. There will always be speculation but I am very happy and so are my family. I hope to continue playing here.
"I think I will stay five years, 10 years - I don't know. I love it here and love the fans.
"I am enjoying playing English football. It is very beautiful. With every game I play, I feel more comfortable. I hope to continue playing football in England for a long time."
